Well-meaning people often encourage us saying: Go for your dreams!
This can be dangerous.
You see, not all your dreams are meant to be pursued. Sounds depressing? Let me try again by using an analogy.
For instance, a dog may have dreams of being able to fly. And he can dream all he want and give his best effort in trying to fly but he still wouldn’t be able to. Why? Because he wasn’t made to fly.
In the same way, I believe each person was designed by God in a specific way in line with his or her purpose in life. To pursue your dreams without consulting the one who made you can be a perfect set-up for disappointment.
Don’t just go for your dreams. Pause. Reflect. Discern. Know God’s dreams for you first.
Then go for them!
